About Us

The Little English language school is located just off Gibraltar's Main street, and a short 8-minute drive from the Spanish border. Our dedicated teachers are highly qualified with up to 15 years teaching experience, and love what they do.


We came up with the idea of Little English after working in various schools across the globe and seeing what makes a fun, successful language school. It's our aim to combine all the best elements from our experiences and apply them to Little English, just for you! 


So why Gibraltar? Gibraltar is a British colony that juts out into the ocean like a finger attached to the very south of Spain. Our coastline is punctuated with beautiful beaches - we are surrounded by water on three sides and connected to Spain by one. The views from up the rock are stunning; there aren't many other places in the world where you can see two continents and three separate countries - all at once!
